and not give your money to a government that's inefficient. >> sean: all of the artists can step up and give their money to government. >> exactly. i'd like to see john boehner give up his social security. >> you can donate your money to charity. you don't need to give it to the government. >> sean: greta is next. see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight speaker newt gingrich tells fellow republicans to get a grip. the former speaker of the house calling the fiscal cliff a fantasy that will appear out of nowhere just like the land of oozdid. speaker gingrich is here to tell us about his message for the gop. but first rush limbaugh has a message for democrats. >> you want to go after rich people? go after yourselves, democrats. start with your own perks. show us you've got some skin in the game instead of blaming everybody else. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house the last two weeks. >> we're not going to kick the can down the road. this is no time for delay. >> how gutless is it to blame the taxpayers? >> compromise is necessa
about the spending. we have a federal government that spends 25% of our gdp. people are jumping up and down, the facty that we got a 2.7% gberksdp growth. that's nothing. ronald reagan had us clicking at 7 to 8% right now, coming out of the carter recession. so we are far from being out of the woods yet. >> there is some conservative organizations, americans for prosperity that was unhappy with speaker boehner's proposal. so he is getting hit by his own team. >> i think this is a very pragmatic proposal that the speaker has laid out, to say that we can generate revenue, not from raising rates, but from reducing the exemptions that are out there. i think we ought to start looking at the six tax brackets and bring it to 2 and flat tax this thing out. >> does that mean, i take tyou are behind the proposal. >> do i stand behind that. one thing i would want to make sure, we cannot compromise our principle, when we talk about the limited government and the growth. when we talk about fiscal responsibility, you can't compromise that. that is what has us in the problems we have right now. a
of the president's promised balanced approach. you know, where is he going to start restrained growth in government? we're open to working with anybody who's willing to acknowledge the problem. >> greta: who's going to blink first? >> first of all, let me tell you where you should get revenue. >> greta: okay. >> by growing the economy. just a couple numbers. already in this meager economic recovery, we've increased revenue to the federal government by $344 billion. if we just return to a normal economy, like we had in 2007, under president bush, where proven was 18.5% of our economy, that would raise another $400 billion per year. the president's proposal right now, the highest estimated is $75 billion, a tenth of that. economic growth is 10 finals more effective at raising revenue. the problem with punishing success, the problem with the president's proposal, it will put that economic growth at risk. you know, i think the best question really is, what is the president's plan? show us your plan. this is about returning confidence to the economy. >> greta: a plan to rev up the economy or a plan for
there is not a joke. we need someone to be serious about the issue, about the spending. we have a federal government that spends about 25% of our gdp and people are jumping up and down the fact that we've got a 2.7% gdp growth in the last quarter. that's nothing. that's quite anemic. ronald reagan had us clicking out of the carter recession at 7 or 8%. > >> greta: americans for prosperity is unhappy with speaker boehner's proposal. he's also getting hit by his own team. >> i think this is a very pragmatic proposal that the speaker has laid out there. to say that we can generate revenues, not from raising rates but from reducing the exemptions, the deducts and loop loopholes out there. how do we start moving away from these six different tax brackets and bring them down to two and flat tax this thing out and expand the tax base as well. >> greta: i take it you're behind the speaker's proposal? >> i do stand behind that proposal. one thing i want to make sure. we cannot compromise our principles. when we start talking about limited government and precluding the growth and expansion of the government,
is going to be done down the road by the government. i don't know anyone who would ever believe such a promise. i don't expect that the republicans would accept that offer from the president. i just don't see that as ever happening in the city. let me ask you -- >> i'm sorry. republicans basically have to say our principles here are correct. our whole analysis of the economy is correct. we need massive spending decreases, and they've got to stick with that. if they can get decent spending increases and have to agree to additional revenue, fine. if they get pushed in the position the president is trying to push them, they stick with their principles, you know, and a year and a half from now go to the electorate with that. it worked in 10. it will probably work in 14. it will be a shame because it will do a lot of damage to our economy in between, but the president has that really on his shoulders. he's the leader. >> greta: mayor, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: breaking news out of syria. the syrian government mixing components for the deadly sarin nerve gas. the ranking
